Succession Planning

Facilitate Succession Plan & Talent Review 

PowerUp Leadership can facilitate a talent review of your high potentials and overall workforce with your senior management team to identify people-focused strategic objectives for your organization. We start the process by engaging key stakeholders to understand current performance and identify development areas.

Align your organization's talent strategy with the overall business strategy to meet your goals. For an organization to meet its goals, it's important to align your people strategy with the overall business strategy. 

  • Do you have a readiness assessment and development plans for when your top talent will be ready to move into a senior leadership position?

    Many businesses are reactive in efforts to develop talent and identify succession risks  in their business.  It takes a multiple year approach to ensure successors are ready to move into an executive level position.  We can help assess readiness and create a plan to address gaps.
  • Do you have a plan for sourcing and retaining talent?

    Business growth requires resources, and fast-growing companies need top talent to grow and serve their customers. A strategy for sourcing and retaining talent is critical.
  • Does your organization plan to grow this year? 

    If so, do you know how many hires you need to add to your team factoring in turnover and retirements, and what positions in what months? Recruitment is a pipeline and take forecasting in advance to generate the desired quality of candidates hired in time to meet business cycles.
  • Do you plan to cut operational costs this year? 

    If so, do you have an employee productivity plan to fully engage and realize the potential of your current team? Do you know what percentage of overhead and labour costs you may want to reduce?
    PowerUp Leadership can facilitate an HR planning session with your senior management team to identify essential strategic objectives for your organization. We will partner with you to establish desired outcomes for this session.

Change Management as part of Introducing New Senior Leader to the Team

  • People impacting organizational changes often fail because little thought or attention is given to the people impact and communication. Human beings are naturally adverse to change and will resist it.  
  • This makes it mission critical to get the buy-in to make your change a success through the design of a change management plan. This involves identifying key change stakeholders and where each team member sits on the change continuum for the particular change occurring.  
  • We can partner with you to create the right level of awareness of the changes happening, and create desire among stakeholders to make your change a success.
